Austin Champ clutch operating arm.
The clutch operating arm, sometimes called the 'yoke' or in the Parts book,'Lever relay clutch', can wear and fail. In the photo below the left shows a worn and corroded hole and on the right is a new yoke.

Working on the clutch yoke can be a nightmare because of accessing it when taking the gearbox out - the main problem being getting the cotter pin out of the clutch operating shaft. I had to make a tool about 5' long to be able to drive the pin out.
